Spread Joy, Shop Concord

The Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce and Intown Concord are partnering to present "Spread Joy, Shop Concord". Presented by NBT Bank, N.A. , this campaign is a collaboration between local businesses, nonprofits and community members to spread the word about the importance of shopping locally for the holidays. We're telling stories about local business owners, their employees, friends, and family who are impacted by your shopping choices this season. And we're sharing inspiring gift ideas, community events, special deals and much more!
